|Subject: Newspaper Man Wed Jun 10, 2009 5:26 pm
A man named Sam had been in the newspaper business for 25 years when he finally became sick of the stress. So he quits his job and buys 50 acres of land in Vermont as far from humanity as possible.
Sam sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month. Otherwise it's total peace and quiet. After six months or so of almost total isolation, he's finishing dinner when someone knocks on his door... He opens it and there is a big, bearded Vermonter standing there.
"Name's Enoch... Your neighbor from four miles over the ridge... having a party Saturday... Thought you'd like to come."
"Great," says Sam, "after six months of this I'm ready to meet some local folks. Thanks for inviting me!"
As Enoch is leaving, he stops, "Gotta warn you though, there's gonna be some drinkin'."
"Not a problem. After 25 years in the newspaper business, I can drink with the best of 'em."
Again, as he starts to leave Enoch stops. "More 'n' likely gonna be some fightin' too."
Tough crowd, Sam thinks to himself. "Well, I get along with people.
Don't worry, I'll be there. Thanks again!"
Once again Enoch turns from the door... "I've seen some wild sex at these parties, too."
"Now that's not a problem," says Sam, "Remember I've been alone for six months! I'll definitely be there... By the way, what should I wear?"
Enoch stops in the door one last time and says, "Whatever you want, just gonna be the two of us."
